Public Health

The BSc (Hons) in Public Health degree is for those with an interest in wellbeing and social development and who want a career in promoting people’s health and wellbeing. The world’s many public health challenges, from the global epidemic of chronic diseases and pandemic of obesity to the effect of poverty, food insecurity, climate change and increased inequalities and equity in health within and between countries are some of the challenges that health promoters will have to address. The BSc Public Health course will provide the underpinning theoretical knowledge (health promotion, health protection, health improvement and epidemiology) along with work-based learning and research project based modules to fulfil these requirements. The emphasis of the course at USW will be on developing competencies mapped against the public health practitioner standards and a portfolio of evidence against the UK Public Health Register’s (UKPHR) which will enable students to start developing the portfolio (though undertaking the course will not include the development of a complete portfolio); furthermore, the option to carry out an overseas project will also be available in the third year.
